My husband and I are transferring our lease from a building in Austin to Dallas. We don't want to spend $12,000 to break the lease so we are going to transfer it to the same company in Dallas. The company has 2 buildings in Dallas for us to choose from. They are close to one another but I'm sure different neighborhoods. The Hanover is close to uptown which seems good but it's just east of the 75 and I read somewhere that's starting to be a higher crime area? Would anyone be able to tell me which area would be safer? Or even any info about either area?

Maple District Lofts
5415 MAPLE AVE.
DALLAS, TX 75235

or

Hanover Cityplace
4030 NORTH CENTRAL EXPRESSWAY
DALLAS, TX 75204

A little background: We are mid-30's, no kids, high income, like to be by shopping and restaurants, bars not so much of a consideration. Would like something safe (I have a dog that I like to walk around where we live) and quieter.

Thanks!!

Honestly, neither are neighborboods where I would walk alone after dark. However, Citiplace is closer to good neighborhoods, so I would pick that one. It's a 2 minute drive to uptown (west of 75) or Knox-Henderson (a mile or so north of Henderson). I'd use the dog parks & walk in either of those neighborboods. Tons of shopping / eating/ entertainment options in both of those close by neighborboods. The Maple complex is by the medical district so much less going on in close proximity- you'd be driving further to the Design District or Uptown to hang out.

Also, don't say "the" before a highway name or number. That's how we know you're from California!

I agree with your statement, the nicer area is going to be to the west near the tollway and 289, however you are in uptown, one of the nicer districts off of 75. My opinion is check out both areas first and determine which one would be better for your commute, and this is Dallas so traffic will be a problem.

289? You mean Preston Road? Do you even live here because 1) no one calls it 289 and 2) it is most definitely not the nicer of these two areas.

Where are you commuting to? I'm familiar with both areas and I would pick the Cityplace Hanover. The medical district is getting better, but it is still very hit or miss and not really walkable. The area around Cityplace isn't really either, but it is a bit better, and like TurtleCreek said, much closer to the other things you like.

Cole Park is on the other side of 75 from the Cityplace...not sure if that is close enough for you

I would actually choose the Medical District building. That specific area is fine. I'm around that area all the time, and I've never had anything bad happen. The Cityplace building is right next to where they're building a huge Sam's Club, and it's right next to the highway. There's a lot of restaurants fairly close to Maple District Lofts, a new Kroger down the road, and more to come. That part of town keeps getting better, while the Cityplace building will likely get a lot worse once the Sam's is done. The traffic is bad and Sam's will make it even more chaotic.

Thanks for the quick answers. We have no commute. I don't work and my husband travels (by car) for work all over TX. He works and stays in rural areas during the week. Is the Medical district really loud because of the nearby airport?

Can you come and visit? They are really different vibes...it might just make sense to visit and see what fits you best

They are both OK but I would choose Cityplace. Its in a good but busy area and you can walk to the west side of Central to the uptown shops. Medical district borders many, may sketchy neighborhoods.
